#291 of 567 Looking for a deal
Aug 10, 2006 (7:44 am)
New to boards...I am ready to purchase the 2006 Sedona EX Luxery model. I test drove it and was impressed. My question is, does anyone know if Kia is coming out with their 2007 models. If so, I might be able to wait until the dealer in town does their "left over inventory" sales. That is how I picked up my Sephia 9 years ago. I saved $5k by waiting a month.
My dealer currently has the model I want for $33k. I can do without the DVD player, but the price is still over $30k. Maybe I should search for a better dealer? You all seemed to have paid much less.

Wow that seems like not a good deal.. The highest priced Sedona is the EX with Luxury, Power, and Premium Entertainment.. The MSRP on that van is 31,595. 33K is way too much even if there are dealer add-ons. I bought one just like that completely loaded for 28,000 minus incentives.. I don't think you can save money by waiting for the new models to come out though. Dealers want to move the 06 models off the lot to make room for those 07s.. I'd shop around a little bit.. Also try dealing via email with the dealership. I think you get better deals that way than you do walking into the showroom..

Thank you for the advice on emailing the dealers. I am going to try that and see what they come back with.
I appreciate your help. Thank you!

I had posted "fuel salling problems" that I had with my mini van in earlier messages. Long story short, had the vehicle for 12 months, 14,000 miles, left me stranded twice, once out of town and it was in the shop for a total of one month in the year that I owned it. What good is the so called "best warranty" if they can't fix the problem the vehicles develop. I looked into suing Kia under the lemon law, but it was gonna be risky because (according to my lawyer) Kia would send a master mechanic to inspect the vehicle and if he did not find anything wrong, then I would not have a case, and since the vehicle did not stall all the time it was not a risk I was willing to take. I traded the vehicle for a new GMC Envoy XL and I could not be happier. Like they say "You get what you paid for" I was fooled by their warranty, but hey! you live, you learn.

Nevermind. After I realized that my trade-in value (5 years from now) would be much less than an Odyssey, I spent the extra $1500 and bought an Odyssey EXL.

Let me guess who you learned that from? A Honda salesman? I would never buy a vehicle based on trade in value.. Every dealer in America will try to rip you off on that trade in when you trade it back in no matter what make and model it is.. They told me the trade in value on my Plymouth Grand Voyager that I traded in after the Plymouth line faded would be crap.. Well I tried another dealer and got bluebook for it.. They told me that my Oldsmobile Silhouette wasn't worth as much after the Oldsmobile line stopped.. Wrong again.. I got Bluebook at another Kia dealer.. Did you get those curtain airbags in the $1500 more Odyssey? Your deal on the kia you posted I think had a long way to go to be a good deal.. I'm sure some other dealers could have beat that one by a long shot.. I know it was going to cost a whole lot more than 1500 for me to get all the features in the Kia.. Mainly the airbags.. Safety is much more important to me than trade in value.. Trade in value is a game with dealers.. That's my opinion at least..
#299 of 567 A quote from my dealer
Aug 21, 2006 (1:18 pm)
I have researched the Sedona I want and here is what I was quoted...For an 06' EX model with the Luxery Package and the Power Package, $26, 830 before tax and tags. I went through BJ's Wholesale Club and a dealer in NJ called me to work with me. He only had the Glacier Blue one in stock with those options and told me it would cost me $500 to do a dealer swap. So I took the pricing he gave me and went to my local dealer, Ertle in Stroudsburg, PA. They do not have the Sunset Gold/Beige Leather Int. in stock, but they are currently looking for one for me. If they find it, it will not cost me anything for them to dealer swap. They gave me a price of $26,630. I am also going to get a tow hitch on it and it is going to cost me $475 extra. Can anyone tell me if, overall, this is a good deal on the model I want? This is inclusive of the $1500 rebate that Kia has for August. Thank you in advance!

Well $500 to do a dealer swap is a load of crap I'll tell you that.. I had 3 dealers here in Ohio looking all over for me and not ever telling me that it was going to cost me anything to do one.. I think if I were you and negotiating I'd shoot for 26K flat with the trailer hitch included if you can get that deal you are getting something.. This late in the year they want to move them.. Invoice is $27,395 for that vehicle.. Make them the offer.. They'll come back to you.. let a couple of dealers know you are willing to pay that.. You'll get your deal..
